Tile Guide 

We have what you need when it comes to tile for your next kitchen or bathroom project. Tile is a very versatile product when it comes to style as well as application. We at Carpet One Floor & Home in Latham and Clifton Park, NY are happy to offer our customers a quality selection of tile. Not only will you find quality floor tile but also quality wall and outdoor tile.

Did you know you can install tile pretty much anywhere in your home? That’s right, not only can you install tile on your floors, but you can also install tile on your walls as a backsplash or accent, or in your showers and even outside as a patio. Tile serves many different functions and allows your creative side to come out.

Below, Jim Aaron explains how to choose the perfect tile for your home.

Types of Tile

When you shop with us you’ll find popular tile options for your home. We carry ceramic, porcelain, and stone tile in addition to other types of tile such as mosaic and glass. Most commonly you will see porcelain and ceramic tiles installed in both homes and business, and this is for a few reasons. One of them being that porcelain and ceramic are budget friendly and the other being they come in a wide variety of options to choose from. Our natural stone selection is unique, as each slab is quarried from different locations meaning there are no two slabs that look alike. Stone may be at a higher price point, but it is long lasting, and when sealed correctly is it resistant to stains and moisture.

Tile Installation

As mentioned before, tile can be installed in several places in your home. Knowing where you want to install tile can also help you determine the type of tile you need for that space. For example, ceramic and porcelain tile are great options for places like your kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, entryway, and mudroom.

When it comes to tile on your walls, you’ll want a light-weight tile with a little bit higher of an absorption rate in order to guarantee the tile will firmly adhered to the wall. Wall and backsplash tile can go anywhere in your home from the wall in your kitchen to the walls in your shower. Most any tile can be installed on walls, but be aware not all wall tile should be installed on floors because they are not made to handle heavy traffic.

We’ll work with you to choose the right grouts and glazes, and we’ll be sure that the end result is exactly what you had in mind.
